    I know my old 95.5 did not have a 1/10th mile for the odometer.

    From what I can see in the pictures this truck has seen a lot of repairs. I'd be willing to bet the odometer is not the original. This vehicle seems like it has been in an accident, and the frame looks like it might be bent slightly. All in all I would not pay them half of what they are asking for this truck.

    That truck looks to be in great condition for having 930,537 miles...I'd believe it if someone had a long commute and liked their truck enough to drive it every day

    Hell I'd buy it just to take it over the 999,999 edge ;)

    Judging by the wear on that shift knob, I'd say it has the many miles.

    IDK man! that does look like it has 900k miles.... I can't believe they'd make an ODO that can't go past 99,999.99 miles???

    Plus, to add to what tacomadude pointed out, look at the wear on the cruise control knob alone! that would tell me a lot of highway miles were had.

    BTW, i've never seen that color before. I like it!

    my old bronco stopped at 99,999.

    And yeah, that truck is beat, don't pay more than 2500 or so if you do go look at it.

    I think the guy who messed with the odometer cant count....They probably pulled the numbers to roll it back and put them in the wrong order. I doubt that it is a 930K mile truck, more like a $930 rip off.

    yeah im going to have to agree. There are a lot of shady used car dealers in ABQ. The d-bag probably tried rolling the odo back and failed.

    lol I was just looking at it closer. The hood doesnt line up right, IT HAS AN '02 BODY ON A '97, the side marker lights don't line up, front bumper is bent on the passenger side, and as someone else said, either the frame is bent or the bed is missing some spacers on the mounts. Either way, its a POS

    Idk about that. 97 motor in an 02 body with an older gauge. Doesn't add up.

    But the color is cool (different)!
